Compression stockings are prescribed for a number of conditions, including edema, pregnancy, and diabetes. The stockings are known to effectively reduce mild leg swelling. They should be worn during the day but taken off at night.Do compression socks really work?
Compression socks work by providing additional support to the blood vessels, particularly the veins that have to work against gravity to return the blood to the heart. Compression garments provide graduated compression, providing increased pressure at one end of the garment and less pressure in other regions to promote blood flow.
